The Humble Lily
The Humble Lily, smiling white
Is so comforting and gives such a wonderful light;
As early as Man can ever recall
The Lily has made his problems seem small.
The green stalk, the white petals
Glistening like lustrous silver metals;
Waiting for little birds to rest
Underneath its widespread crest.
